Just the word promise gets you in the gut, doesn't it? Happy memories, sad memories, personal triumphs, and personal disappointments wash over us at the mention of the word promise. But there's a different promise that is so consistent from the giver and so reliable for the receiver that it evokes nothing but joy. It's God's own promise to you personally. Welcome to Jesus' church. We do more than remember God's promises in our heads. We remember God's promises in ways that change our lives.
